Can handheld breathalyzers be used as evidence to convict me of an underage drinking ticket in Vermont?
I blew a 0.03 and denied drinking any alcohol. If I go to court, do I have a chance at fighting it because they didn't do a calibrated breathalyzer at the station? I read handheld devices aren't accurate enough to be admissible in court.
Most states do not allow these tests to be admitted. You will need a VT lawyer to confirm this is the case there....
I was jailed for 39 days after a dwi, was not told job was in jeopardy, and told when released I lost job. Unemployment denied.
I have an outstanding letter of recommendation from employer, and had been with them 4 years. I believe I am entitled to unemployment. The job and the benefits are from Putnam County NY. I was not even told that I had lost my job until I phoned them from jail to check in, and was told I had been terminated 3 weeks earlier, with no correspondence from them. Please help me.
Not sure what your question is here. I don't believe the cops have a duty to inform you your job is in jeopardy if you...
So I was pulled over for driving with no non criminal suspended license "due to unpaid fines" I don't have none and was confirmed by DMV but I did find out my license was suspended when pulled over due to insurance not sending documents to DMV of sr22 being valid but officer never asked for anything but ID and most questions where regarding the "what he asked if it was a roch " no! And that's after he asked about my guns that I legally carry in my car

How reliant is the BAC Back Calculation given what I blew at the station?
Hello I got pulled over last night for not having my headlights on (there are many street lights so I didn't realize it). I had some beers to drink and was asked to do sobriety tests. I feel that I did fine and the officer would not tell me what I did wrong when he asked if I would take a breath test. I refused the test on the street and was taken back to the station where they gave a test. I blew a .066. The test was taken 59 minutes after I was pulled over. Given this information it seems I might be on the line for being over the limit. How does the Back Calculation work and if it does stand that theoretically was above the limit, I assume it wouldn't be by much so what are my chances of defending this successfully? I have heard that the Back Calculation has to make assumptions to do the math and is sometimes not relied heavily or that people can get off because there is no possibility to have theoretically known with 100% certainty when I was pulled over.
What you are talking about is retrograde extrapolation. A retrograde extrapolation requires knowledge of what you...
I would like to sue the Saint Albans State Police for defamation of character, where should I start?
I was pulled over for speeding and subsequently charged with possession and trafficking 880 grams of cocaine. The State Trooper saw hair ties on the floor, which apparently are used to package heroin. This gave him a reason to search my Sister-In-Laws car, which she bought at an auction 3 months prior. After a test kit came back positive for cocaine they then turned the two (2) boxes of baking soda that was in the back into 800 grams of cocaine. Not only did I lose my job because, of this, I have not been able to get a job since the three articles were printed and a segment on the Channel 3 news. I've also had to help my daughter cope with problems she now has with her classmates because, of the unwanted publicity and false accusations. At this point it has become harassment because, it's not the first time this happen. My name has been slandered beyond repair and I can't support myself or my daughter without a job. I have more to say and I'll be willing to do so, when the time comes.

Have you been judged not guilty of the offense or have the charges been dropped against you?
